All pupils in Year 6 enjoyed the fabulous opportunity to spend a day at Ampleforth College, where they were treated to several exciting opportunities to try their skills and to show and develop their leadership qualities. They were given expert rugby training on the first class Dallaglio Rugby Match Ground. Enormously popular was the indoor shooting range, where they learnt to fire at targets and how to load, and clear the rifles. They had to work out how to put up a tent, using their logic and there was a dance session in the hall. It was great to see the former Miss Clare Holloway there too, who used to teach at Mowden!
